Helping Vera

Vera Nazarian, a publisher who has stood by me since my first novel, who put A Guide to Folktales in Fragile Dialects into the world, is about to lose her house, like so many others.

There is a community, helpvera . Her story, which just shows how close most of us are to disaster, is here. I've donated. Please help her out if you can, because she has had no end of bad luck, because with the big publishers crashing we have to make sure the small ones survive, because if one thing is true of our community, it's that we can make astonishing things happen.

If there is anything you guys would be interested in that I can auction for her, post a comment. I have ARCs, signed editions, juvenalia, unpublished mss, I make shiny things--I could record an audio version of any of your favorite short pieces. Let me know what you want--if it results in a donation for her, I'll do it. Vera has been a force for good for a lot of people. Sometimes you just need a helping hand.

ETA: Auction items here. If there's something else you're interested in, let me know. I do have an extra Palimpest ARC.
